Last year’s exceptionally wet autumn has wreaked havoc on the establishment of winter crops in many parts of the UK, with the wettest areas seeing less than half of winter crops going in on time and in good conditions.

In other areas, drilling progressed marginally more smoothly, but a lot of young crops have subsequently been sitting in water-logged conditions, with a significant percentage expected to be written off due to the extended wet weather.

The importance of spring-sown crops such as wheat, barley, oats, linseed, pulses, soya and maize will therefore be significantly escalated in 2024, with growers looking for alternative options to bring land back into meaningful production.

At the same time, growers and agronomists will need to reassess how best to protect these revised cropping plans from the usual array of diseases, weeds and pests.

This course provides advice on using fungicides, herbicides and plant growth regulators (PGRs) in the 2024 growing season.
